3-year old child finds unsecured gun and fatally shoots himself in the head in Texas

A 3-year old child found a loaded, unsecured gun at home in Lubbock, Texas, and fatally shot himself in the head with it.

From an article:
Police officers were called out to a residence at 1803 76th Street just before six Saturday night.
LPD reports the child reportedly found a family member's gun in the home and accidentally shot himself in the head.
The child was transported to UMC where he was pronounced dead.
Every gun in the hands of a child must first pass through the hands of an adult.
